Nanoscale Optical Switch Invented
2014-03-14 15:31:09

David Salisbury, Vanderbilt University An ultra-fast and ultra-small optical switch has been invented that could advance the day when photons replace electrons in the innards of consumer products ranging from cell phones to automobiles. The new optical device can turn on and off trillions of times per second. It consists of individual switches that are only one five-hundredth the width of a human hair (200 nanometers) in diameter. This size is much smaller than the current generation...

Titanium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a light, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including resistance to sea water and chlorine) transition metal with a white-silvery-metallic color. Titanium is used in strong light-weight alloys (most notably with iron and aluminum) and its most common compound, titanium dioxide, is used in white pigments. This element occurs in numerous minerals with the main sources being rutile and...

Vanadinite is a mineral with the formula Pb5(VO4)3Cl, lead chlorovanadate. It is part of a series with two other minerals: pyromorphite (Pb5(PO4)3Cl) and mimetite (Pb5(AsO4)3Cl). It has hexagonal crystals, usually prismatic but the crystals are often skeletal or cavernous and it may be found in crusts. It is brittle and has an uneven fracture. The hardness of vanadinite is 2.75-3 and its specific gravity is 6.7-7.2. It has a resinous lustre and is coloured yellow, yellowish-brown,...
